Merry Monday First Christmas

It's Merry Monday time again.  I love this sketch.  There's so much you can do with it!



Here's what I did.


This stamp set, First Christmas, was in last year's Holiday Catalog.  I'm sorry it didn't make it into this years Christmas stamps because I think it's so sweet. I can consider it a NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) that Darnell has challenged us to use.

I used some card and paper snippets so I'll go to Pixie's Playground with this too.

Be sure to check with the rest of the Merry Monday team.  What talent there!


I'd love to see what you can do with Lesley's wonderful sketch.  Have a play and bring one over to Merry Monday to share with us. It's a great way to add to your Christmas card stash!

All Supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
